In 1984, Wintec’s revolutionary saddles were born from the vision of Ron and Ken Bates, owners of Bates Saddlery Australia in Perth, Western Australia. The central idea behind Wintec Saddles is the idea of laminating a single layer of cloth to a foam backing. By laminating foam to fabric, the durability of the fabric is considerably increased. The most innovative outstanding feature of Wintec's New Generation saddles is the NEW EASY-CHANGE Gullet System which allows the head of the saddle to be opened without any unstitching and the gullet changed to one of 6 different sizes. Changing the gullet enables the saddle to be custom fitted to a horse's withers. Combine top performance features with Wintec's hassle free easy maintenance qualities and it’s easy to see why Wintec is the world's number one synthetic saddle.
